I have a porter cable pancake compressor 135 and it's sparking and smoking . What do you think it is?


Heavy sparking at brushes indicates shorted armature or short in field. Examine commutator bars, should look dark gray to black but very smooth. If scratched or pitted most likely end of life. If not too bad could be weak brush springs or worn brushes. Brushes should be at least 1/2 to 3/4 in in length. If commutator and brushes good , suspect field. Good luck

The compressor motor is getting hot, I removed the cover and one of the brushes is shooting sparks when the motor is turned on, the brushes seem to have plenty of pad left and seem to be aligned properly...


If there were a problen with the field or the armature, both brushes would make fire(look at both sides of each brush for spark). Sparking is normal, however heavy blue fire would indicate problem. When one brush is making unusual sparks I would suspect that the spring applying pressure to the brush against the armature has failed. Look at both brush springs and see if there is a color difference or feel the pressure that the springs are exerting. They should be equal. You can push on the brush slightly with wood or plastic tool. To see if there is an improvement. Replace parts as needed. Test the motor with amp meter and compare to amp rating on plate to be sure that there is not a problem with motor. If amp draw is slighly high, check for tight bearing, leaking head gaskets/reed valves or leaking checkvalve at the tank. Good luck.

I need new brushes for Powermate Air Compressor motor. Where can I purchase them or do I need to have a Technician install? Model #CL0551109 Thank You J.L. Brooks


Brushes are not listed as a replacement part for your compressor. Not to worry because universal brushes are available at tool repair shops, hardware stores and ebay. Measure your brush and order same size or slightly larger and sand to fit. Dont worry too much about the length of brush as they can be shorter than factory and still work fine (just longer than worn brushes). Some motors have a spring pushing brush onto armature and others utilize the spring attached to brush to make contact. You can cut off wire from back of brush if needed, however if your motor needs brushes with spring attached, find close match and solder your old contact and spring to new brush. Also check for other problems because brushes should last the life of motor on your unit. Good luck

Motor starts and stops at short intervels with large amounts of spark on one side of brushes.


your brushes are worn out and have probably ruined the stator commutator rings, you can try new brushes,but i believe its too late

I need motor brushes for campbell hausfeld WL611105AJ air comp.


If you can find a match to the brushes that came out of the motor they will work. When I say match, I mean the size. Height, width and depth, length only needs to be close to allow for wear over time. The longer the brush the more wear you will get. If you can't find the exact size then you can always file a larger brush to fit. I just had to do that for a small motor in my shop-vac, works great. Also another consideration is how the line coming off the back of the brush connects to the Stator. If you can't match the connector soldering it is fine or crimp the appropriate connector to it. Beyond those two elements brushes are pretty much the same.

Your biggest problem is finding an assortment of brushes. Some hardware stores will carry some, (check the bins with all the small nut, bolts and other connectors), also automotive parts stores carry them, (for alternators),. Your best bet would be an electric motor repair shop.
Good luck

Change your spark plug
If the fuel oil mixture is too oily it will foul the spark plug and no cleaning will get it right.
If there is a lot of oil in the crankcase it may foul the new spark plug so another new one is needed

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
